My Targets got her, but I didn't buy her because I was anticipating the Then&Now pack. I won't be too broken up if I never get that one. It's the 1993 Rita that I'm really interested in.

I'm a little confused… I could have sworn the Metallic Legacy Figures
were a WALMART exclusive. Bruno said check Target?

Oh don't get me wrong I really want the 1993 Rita too but I would at least like to have a complete PR movie figure set.

I hope it doesn't get cancelled either. Been waiting for it since MMPR Toys showed the prototype 93 Rita months back. I did buy the smaller one Movie Rita when I found it, which wasn't very easy to find!

I watched Bruno's video for the new MMPR Legacy Rangers. So Bandai gives us the weapons that they promised us, but they are going to make the figures hard to find in an extremely limited release.... How does that benefit the collector exactly?

Well, it is better than nothing.
Like I said above... I just want to make sure I am looking
For them at the right store. Can anyone confirm if it is
Indeed Target now instead of Walmart for these guys?

Bruno never said "extremely". He said...

Which just as easily describes each of the first three waves of these Legacy figures. And will likely describe each of the future waves of these Legacy figures.

Bruno is no doubt a valuable member of the fandom, but he certainly isn't someone that has been through years of discussion within the fandom and clearly not on this board, as there are certain turns of phrase you just don't use - such as this one - because the masses start to FREAK THE F!@# OUT when that is often not warranted.

IIRC, Target tends to always brand the packaging of items which are Target exclusives (see the Movie 6-pack) whereas Walmart never does. As the packaging for these has been seen and isn't branded with a Target logo, they are likely not exclusives.

Target probably just got their shipments first and therefore the stock is further along the supplier-to-shelves chain.

I have yet to see Wave 3 at any near Targets so I wonder if the metallic line will ever make it here at all.

The only re-release of MMPR id buy is a four pack of Blue, Pink, Black, Yellow with white belts and bolts on the morphers. If they included weapons without the metallic hue even better. Easy $100 for them.

The part that I was concerned about what that he specifically mentioned Target. In re-watching the video, I can see that he did not say that they were only available at Target lol.

Lol at that video's comments. Jesus christ are some people really that dense to think Bandai is going to waste money making WEAPON backs for existing 6 inch figures? It's clear these people don't run businesses or know anything about companies. I hear the excuse that it would be cheap to produce and the Bandai classic markup would make it profitable. It won't be profitable when they have pegs and pegs of them sitting there. You'd have to make it so limited it wouldn't be worth the hassle to make in the first place. Also worth mentioning that even though Bandai has made some of these figures with collectors in mind a majority of their sales is still coming from kids who couldn't care less that they are special Legacy figures and as their primary mark they will produce with them in mind over collectors any day. I hate Bandai as much as anyone else here but it's ridiculous when people expect them to make dumb idiotic moves like that one with the weapon packs.

They sure as hell don't seem to have a problem making cheap-ass ninja stars and letting those clog shelves.

That's cool, with the giant movie Red Ranger helmet. Not a fan of that box functionality design, but I hope to get these!
